Boeing 737 MAX 8 Groundings Spread Around The World

Norwegian Air Shuttle to demand Boeing pay for grounding of planes

Quoted in local media reports, Nimalsiri said that Sri Lanka was monitoring the situation closely but no such aircraft was overflying or landing in Sri Lanka at the moment.

On Tuesday, the ministry of civil aviation tweeted saying, "DGCA has taken the decision to ground the Boeing 737-MAX planes immediately".

On Sunday, a new Ethiopian Airlines 737 MAX 8 went down minutes into a flight from Addis Ababa to Nairobi, killing all 157 people on board.

While aviation experts warn against drawing conclusions until more information emerges from the crash investigation, much of the world, including the European Union, has grounded the Max 8 or banned it from their airspace.

Boeing 737 Max 8 GROUNDED: Have your flights been affected? The data showed similarities between the Ethiopian Airlines flight and the Lion Air crash that killed 189 people in Indonesia in October.

USA airlines that operate the 737 MAX, Southwest Airlines Co, American Airlines Group Inc and United Airlines, said they were working to re-book passengers. He said the decision to ground the aircraft "didn't have to be made, but we thought it was the right decision". "We didn't have to make this decision today", Trump said.

The airport is storing 10 of the aircraft and says it has the flexibility to store more.

The crash has prompted governments worldwide including the U.S.to ban the American aerospace giant's bestselling jet from their airspace.

"We boarded, we sat down and we weren't even, not everyone was even boarded yet and the captain came out and said that we're grounded that we're on that plane", said Southwest passenger Kate Caravella. United Airlines had about 40 flights with the planes.

"We are not going to analyze (the boxes)", he added.

Garneau announced the move Wednesday morning, citing "new data" that warrants temporarily grounding the passenger jets as a precautionary measure.

Trump said any airplane now in the air will go to its destination and then be grounded. The disaster is the second with a Max 8 plane in just five months.

Southwest is the only air carrier with 737 Max planes flying in and out of St. Louis Lambert International Airport, according to airport director Rhonda Hamm-Niebrugge.

"Safety is paramount. So I'm actually pleased that we've taken action and some people might see it as drastic, but sometimes we need drastic changes", Mopress said.
